Also new here. One thing I did not understand about the "intelligence in a box created by less intelligent beings" analogy was why would the 'intelligence in a box' be impatient with the pace of the lesser-beings? It would seem that impatience/urgency is related to the time-finiteness of the intelligence. As code with no apparent finiteness of existence, why does it care how fast things move?
